A story of a couple who won the top prize 15 years ago

15 years ago, David and Margaret Storey from Shipley won GBP1.4Million in a National Lottery.

It was a few weeks before their wedding, when they won the top prize. It changed a lot of things for them. The money made it possible for them to change their honeymoon destination from Blackpool to Barbados. Since then, they travelled to far-flung places like Maldives and Dominican Republic.

Mrs Storey, now 58 said the money was a welcome relief as her husband at that time was unable to work due to sickness.

She said: “It’s taken away any worry. I think anybody would have financial concerns if there was only one wage coming in. We have moved to a larger detached house and it’s given us the chance to travel more.”

The couple still lead a normal life even with the money.

“We haven’t changed,” Mrs Storey said. “It gave us peace of mind and it gave us choices. We live an average life. Initially we went on a few big holidays but then we settled down and have done normal things.”

The Billionaire Series with Euro Jackpot Draw

The Billionaire Series is a unique new product from Overseas Subscribers Agents. It allows a player to enter - and quite possibly win - in eight separate lotteries for an entire month. The Billionaire series was launched several months back and initially included the German National Lottery in its list.

Last month, however, the German Lotto was removed and replaced with the much larger pan-european lottery, the Euro Jackpot draw. Unlike the German Lotto which had an average jackpot of 4 or 5 million euros per draw, the Euro Jackpot offers a minimum of EUR 10 million every Friday. It can also grow to a maximum of EUR 90 million before the jackpot prize is rolled down to its 11 lower division prize tiers.

Being pari-mutuel, Euro Jackpot gives more opportunities for lower division prize winners to bring home a larger share of the prize. This spells good news for TBS fans – whether they're joining the group play or individual play.

The Billionaire Series is undoubtedly the biggest and most exciting lottery offering available in the world today. You play every single draw of eight of the world’s biggest lotteries for your share of at least US$15,860,476,172. This is the MINIMUM amount paid out by these 8 giant Lottos each year.

Eight Reasons to Play the Billionaire Series

  1. Euro Millions can roll over time and again until the jackpot reaches €190 million. The largest first prize on record is EUR 185 Million won in July 2011.
  2. The UK National Lottery will pay out over £1.9 Billion in tax- free cash prizes this year.
  3. The biggest Italian Superenalotto Jackpot was EURO 177,729,044.00 on October 30th, 2010.
  4. With winning odds of 1 in 9, and a total cash payout reaching over $2 Billion every year, the Japan Jumbo Draw is undoubtedly the richest Lottery draw in Asia.
  5. Mega Millions holds the record for the largest Lottery Jackpot ever paid in the United States: US$656 Million in March 2012!
  6. The record American Powerball Jackpot won in February 2006 was $365 MIllion and Jackpots are expected to exceed USD500 Million this year!
  7. The biggest Australian Lottery (Saturday Draw) jackpot on record is A$47.9 Million won in April 2008.
  8. The EuroJackpot lottery, has some of the best winning odds and a truly exciting 12-tier prize winning chart. Jackpots start at Eur 10 Million and can reach up to Eur 90 Million in a single draw!

Playing every single draw of these 8 lotteries would normally cost a small fortune. However, with the Billionaire Series, you can minimize the cost by playing in a group of 10 or 30 shares. Because the entry cost is shared among your Group's members, you can multiply your chances of winning a big share of billions in cash prizes by playing all these lottery draws --- for much less!
